You are invited to help protect land in Hull, MA, including along the Weir River Estuary

Get to know the Estuary!  Join us on an upcoming walk.


Our new goal is a continuous Straits Pond Waterfowl Viewing Park Walk.  Reaching the goal involves purchasing land to connect Richards Road with the land side of the Town-owned Straits Pond Peninsula Preserve, including the Eastman Road right-of-way. We are raising donations and pledges  to have matching funds for a Conservation Partnership Grant.  Your donation and pledge as a donor-member will help make this vision come true.
Click to go to lulu.com to preview and order a Hull Along the Edges 2015 calendar to help create a continuous walk on the wooded side of Straits Pond for a Waterfowl Viewing Park.
An illustrated 1795 map of Hull makes a great gift.  The print comes with a certificate with your name and, if you wish, the name of someone you would like to honor.  The certificate includes interesting facts behind the three watercolor illustrations, which show Hull Village, Point Allerton and Nantasket Beach, and the tide mill at West Corner.  The map is available in two sizes.  The original size, 12½” by 16”, is offered as a thank you for donations of $130, of which $100 is tax deductible, and the 8” by 10” version is offered as a thank you for donations of $65, of which $50 is tax deductible.
         You can donate using the button below or send a check using the donation form.   If you donate online, we will contact you to learn your wishes.  Donations of any amount will help.  Let us know if you would like a collector's-item decal or a card to honor someone.   Thank you.



Thanks to everyone's good thoughts and generosity
we raised over $298,000 and 
paid for the Chatham Street entrance to the Weir River Woods.
Enjoy your Woods!
